This month is all about the history of the women who did and made a difference on their terms. Feminism has become dubbed as something unattractive, unpopular and anti-men but that’s so far from what this powerful movement is the key definition is Gender Equality, and that’s the most important part.
A quote I love by George Carlin says “Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.” That’s the fact of the mater we are the same species and Feminism is for everyone to be treated like every other because every individual is special and deserves respect. So for women’s history month, I would like to take a look at a poem that I found inspirational for an amazing artist who speaks words of power and truth.
Yes I am a feminist, and I believe that women should not be defined by her body, shape or looks but her mind and just as any other person be treated with the respect and equality. As women looking back at history, I can only stand in pride and complete admiration for all the work that was paved for my generation and now the generations ahead of me. To see just how much change has taken place it drives me to say that humanity is a force to be reckoned with and there is a comradery within the walls of love.
Regardless of race, gender or body, we need to come together and see that no one person cannot define the other. We can’t say how a person should dress, act or hold themselves it’s these ideas that lead to serotypes and so very often place us into these one-dimensional situations where people become boxed and are so very much subjected to discrimination.
This poem by Cecile Emeke is for the women out there who are divided and at a loss with themselves. Subjected to words of division and blinded by lovers whose intentions are hurtful and depreciative. Cecile Emeke words are powerful and interpreted in any away which as a viewer so let your sense indulge in this poetic artistry.
